On this site, 3 February 1887, the Ontario College of Pharmacy opened its first permanent building, which was also the first school of pharmacy erected in Canada, parts of which still stand. It served as a teaching and administrative centre for the profession in Ontario until 1963. Established by provincial act in 1871, the College exerted significant influence upon the development of pharmacy in Canada far beyond the borders of the province.
